This morning at Church the solo was the following that I found so appropriate!
” A man ventures into town, but he’s robbed and he’s beaten down. More than one person passes him by without offering to lend a hand. Til a man with a foreign face takes notice and slows his pace. He casts aside social barriers and takes the stranger under his care. And the grateful man he asks why did you save me?
In this world we all share—
One Father, one Mother – each heart like the other – look through the eyes of Love and you’ll only see your brother there. There’s power in forgiveness – I believe we can live this – look through the eyes of Love and you’ll see you’re not that different from me.
Now you say that your God’s not mine. And that’s why you draw this line. There are too many differences and it’s best we remain status quo. But we travel from shore to shore, so our worlds collide all the more. We’re given chances to reach out like that kind stranger long ago. And if we could only try to hear each other, we would learn that…
In this world we all share one Father, one Mother”
Couldn’t we all learn from the story of “The Good Samaritan”? Luke 10:25-37
